DIY -- Protect Your "Cheap" Jewelry

There's nothing worse than finding inexpensive jewelry that you just absolutely looooooooooove and then having it either leave your skin green or eventually tarnish and look so bad that you can't wear it anymore. But never fear! I will show you the easiest trick to keep your jewelry looking new! And I bet you already have what you need sitting around your house...

Yup. Clear nail polish. I told you it was something you already had! Before I wear any costume jewelry for the first time, I apply a nice layer of top coat to any area of it that will touch my skin and let it dry thoroughly. If the piece is something I wear frequently, I will reapply top coat to it every 3 months or so.

I thought y'all might enjoy the quick tip, since I just posted about a great knockoff of Kate Middleton's engagement ring!

Happy polishing!
